The Governor and the Students: Jesuit High School and College of Marin?
: The first program features a group of honorary scholastic students at Jesuit High School in Sacramento. It was taped on location in one of the studios of Channel 10. Labels on the videotape indicate that this tape concerns the College of Marin, 19 December 1973. While there is no introductory slate, Reagan's spoken introduction states it to be Jesuit High. There is no confirmation of the date on the label.
A public safety announcement (PSA) about seat belts precedes the main program. Governor Reagan drives up to a sheriff who is standing along the road and talks to him through the car window. The sheriff thanks Reagan for wearing his seat belt. Reagan tells the sheriff how seat belts save lives, then turns to the camera and says, "Why don't you belt yourself." The sheriff turns to the camera and suggests that you "belt your wife or girlfriend--keep her alive too."
The second program features an unidentified group of students. It appears to have been taped in the studio at the state capitol. Tape labelling suggests this concerns the College of Marin, but the introductory slate indicates only that it is the Governor and Students 6/11 number 14. Because the program cuts off some amount of the beginning, Reagan's spoken introduction, during which he usually identifies the students to the audience, is missing. While the tape label lists the date as 9 January 1974, the slate suggests it is June 11.
These programs are part of a televised series of question-and-answer sessions with high school students conducted by Ronald Reagan as governor of California, relating to California state political issues. they were produced by JRH and Associates, Inc.Sequence
